Rising mixed martial arts star and decorated female boxer Heather Hardy will take on Kristina Williams in her second Bellator fight in the co-main event of tomorrow’s (Oct. 20, 2017) Bellator 185 from the Mohegan Sun in Connecticut.
At today’s (Oct. 19, 2017) weigh-ins, Hardy stepped off the scale to engage in a stare down with Williams, but she was confronted by another female who elected to approach the stage.
According to a report from MMAFighting.com, that female was Shelly Vincent, whom Hardy scored a win over in a boxing bout last year for the WBC International female featherweight title.

When asked about Vincent, Hardy labeled her simply as an ‘obsessed fan’:
“I’m completely focused on my opponent right now and keeping my undefeated record wherever I fight,” Hardy said. “Besides, that was just one of my obsessed fans.”
Hardy made her mixed martial arts and Bellator debut last June at Bellator 180, scoring a TKO victory over Alice Yauger at Madison Square Garden. She also holds a 20-0-1 professional boxing record.
Bellator 185 is set to be headlined by a middleweight clash between Gegard Mousasi and ex-champion Alexander Shlemenko.
